Inter Coach Jose Mourinho Is Like The Legendary Helenio Herrera - Giovanni Trapattoni

The 'Special One' has received big praise...
Jose Mourinho is like legendary Inter coach Helenio Herrera, says Giovanni Trapattoni.

Trapattoni, who led Inter to Scudetto glory in 1989, claims the 'Special One' has a similar hard-line style to Herrera, who won two European Cups with the Grande Inter of the 1960's.

"He [Mourinho] is the new Herrera," Trapattoni told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"He is very good on the bench when he communicates, and he has understood the difficulties of Italian football."

Mourinho is known to be a coach with his own ideas, but Trap has given him some advice for the Champions League.

"I have something to say. I would advise him to play Mario Balotelli against Chelsea."
